    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at McKesson (Jacksonville, FL).

    Interview

    Received an email offering a phone interview. Met with a group of attorneys in the jax office and did a final interview with the VA office on the phone. The group of people were very nice but did not seem to work well was a team (meaning their personalities were so obviously different).It also was not clear as to what exactly I would be doing.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at McKesson in July 2015.

    Interview

    Was called to interview with hiring manager, which was a 2 hour drive away. The same day, I was contacted by email to continue the process with a local account rep, and was called by that rep immediately to schedule. That interview took place the next day. While things moved very quickly in the beginning, it took nearly another two weeks even with follow up to find out they went in another direction. While the interview itself was pretty standard, I thought it was inconsiderate that no one reached out to even let me know they chose someone else given the quick pace of the interview process. I just found it very unprofessional to run someone around, driving two hours each way for interviews, then never let them know what happened with the position.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at McKesson (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Second face-to-face interview consisting of three consecutive 30 minute interviews with different members of the project management team followed by a one hour case study and presentation activity. As with the first face-to-face interview, this one did not start on time. Had to wait in the lobby for nearly 15 minutes before someone showed up to bring me inside. No one seemed to know what was the next step in the hiring process.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at McKesson in June 2015.

    Interview

    Applied on McKesson website for Operations Supervisor position. I was contacted about a week later by a recruiter. Telephone screening lasted about 30 minutes. Recruiter seemed very distracted...I could hear his car door opening and closing as he was driving his car. I feel as a military vet I was simply used as a number for the recruiter. Recruiter said he would call back within a week but never did.

    Negative Experience

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at McKesson in June 2015.

    Interview

    The recruiter was responsive throughout the process and after months of attempts to reach me I decided to give it a go:a mistake. The director and I had a hour or so phone interview. I was scheduled for an in person interview with him and two managers. I arrive and it was clear they were not prepared. One of the mangers( I had an invite to speak to three Relay Health/Mckesson Health mangers was not even present, and the other manager was not sure of his whereabouts(Then someone said he had a work from home day). There was confusion over where to conduct the interview. The director was clearly distracted as he kept leaving, finally after they wasted( I could tell they just wanted to be done with the whole thing) two hours the process was brought to an end. The director never returned. However I spent the next 30 minutes trying to get my parking ticket validated at the 2100 Powell location -it never happened so I paid 15 dollars at the auto ticket machine to get out off the parking lot. The only good thing is that they were polite throughout the whole process.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at McKesson (Aurora, CO) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online after talking with a recruiter at a job fair. The first interview/prescreen over the phone was very basic. Why do you want to work at McKesson and what do you know about the company were the two main questions. The in person interview was scheduled for the next week. At that interview there were three people in the panel. The atmosphere was fairly relaxed. Attire was business professional all around.
